July Plant of the Month: The Dahlia

July Plant of the Month: The Dahlia

The show stopping Dahlia is our Plant of the Month for July. Grown by us for you, the Dahlia has a wide choice of flower shapes and colours and provides wonderful displays from summer into autumn. Why not combine them with other late-flowering plants like salvias and grasses to boost late-season borders and give a pop of colour or grow them in rows to give lots of cut flowers for your home? 

 

Did you know? 

If you keep cutting flowers for indoor use, your plants will keep producing more until the first frosts. Just remember to only cut the flowers when fully opened, as closed buds don’t open after picking. Brown petals at the back of opened flowers are a sign of old age, so avoid these for the longest vase life.
